Re: Reads no disk

If the unit is brand new ask for refund.
if the cd's are brand new and no disk the lens is dirty or bad laser.

Emerson dual screen dvd player reads " bad disk"

Try using a CD lens cleaner and see if that helps resolve the issue. If not, it could be that the lens/laser has misaligned, and you will need to take the machine for servicing.

If the set reads CD and MP3, and not reads DVD discs only, replace its laser pickup unit. It is faulty.

How do you put the cd into player> which side

normally the label goes up however if there is no label one side is usually shinier than the other that side goes down. If all else fails put the disk in if it reads it than you have it right if it fails to read the disc than turn it over. It shouldn't hurt anything to put it in upside down

Wont recognise any disk

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

NAD T532 probem

CD and DVD disks use a different set of optics for each type of operation. Some units have a different laser for the different format types.

The fault could be mechanical alignment, calibration, or a failure in the signal and or processor path. These types of faults are impossible to guess at.

If the unit is under warranty, contact the dealer to find out how to get it serviced. If out of warranty it may not be feasible to service.

Dvd player reads no disk

Hello thank you for choosing for your answer My name is David.
It sounds to me like Its in need of cleaning the dvd lenses collect dust over time
of no use and will cause them to not read properly try running a dvd cleaner disk in it you may have to run it a few times but it should work if it doesnt you can try to take it apart to get to the lense and clean it with alcohol and a cue tip lightly dipped.
